The event of the year is here — the Great Alaska Beer and Barley Wine Festival takes place today and tomorrow! Today’s Year of Beer painting is of my favorite barley wine that is available on draft at the Loft at Midnight Sun Brewing Co. I bought several bottles when this beer was released last year and as far as I know, these bottles are no longer available for sale. This rich Belgian style barley wine is the celebratory beer commemorating the 3000th batch of beer brewed at MSBC since it’s beginning in 1995. This makes MSBC not only one of the best Alaska breweries, but also the oldest Anchorage brewery. If you go to one other beer stop
during AK Beer Week, stop in to the Loft at MSBC to see my colorful beer-themed artwork on display this month only, while you sip a glass of 3000.
